When Bryan and I visit foreign countries, we tend to do a lot of walking. If our destination is within three miles or so of our starting point, we’ll choose to walk over taking public transportation because when you walk you get to see things (metros don’t tend to be all that scenic)…time spent walking is never wasted, it is invested.
We thoroughly enjoyed walking around Paris during May. The weather was pleasant, everyone was happy, flowers were blooming in window-boxes, and signs of life were everywhere. I don’t really know the exact locations of most of these photographs, so this post won’t contain much writing. Even still, I wanted to share these pictures with you because the streets are what made me fall in love with Paris.
“Not all those who wander are lost.”

“He who contemplates the depths of Paris is seized with vertigo.
Nothing is more fantastic. Nothing is more tragic.
Nothing is more sublime.”
